Things you have been slow to realise


#1902

Really makes u thing


#1903

I was aware of this but I refuse to agree with it


#1904

How can Judas Priest have got it SO wrong?!


#1905

I refuse to believe a professor of English language over the Black Country’s finest.


#1906

In The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the big question of Life, The Universe and Everything - What do you get if you multiply six by nine? - does equal 42 - the answer to LTUAE - if you’re working in base 13.
This revelation took me fucking decades.


#1907

I’ve been hearing a lot about Rebecca Ferguson being in a lot of films and this whole time i’ve been a bit like “oh that’s a bit weird but good for Rebecca Ferguson for making it in hollywood!”

I’d been thinking of this Rebecca Ferguson.


#1908

Me too! When I heard she was in the Greatest Showman I thought wow, she’s done well for herself! :joy:


#1909

Her career’s really taken off since she divorced Prince Andrew


#1910

Woah - Jake Gyllenhaal is one of Billy Crystal’s kids in City Slickers


#1911

The crucible in Sheffield (old steel city) where snooker is played.

A crucible is a ceramic or metal container in which metals or other substances may be melted or subjected to very high temperatures.

FFS. Always thought it was a weird name for a venue, never drew the link between a container for melting shit at high temperature and a town famed for melting shit at high temperatures.


#1913

I think the fact that it is ‘in the round’ is also a factor


#1914

There was a good one on Radio 1 this week (my kids like to listen on the way to school, all right?) where people had always assumed that Breakfast Tea didn’t taste of bacon, sausage, beans, toast etc, and realised it just tasted of tea.


#1915

Take it to the ‘Things Stupid People Thought Were True’ thread :roll_eyes:


#1916

Jason Bateman is Teen Wolf Too!!!


#1917

There were those Full English flavour limited edition Walkers crisps (think there was a celeb tie in naming them “Stephen Fry up”) and they apparently just tasted of egg. Would rather have Trump as president for the rest of my life than eat them.


#1918

CW for being vulgar and crude, but may as well tell the truth… for years I thought “rogering” as in people making the beast with two backs came not from “Roger” as in radio communication but short for “the erogenous zones”


#1919

Croissant means crescent :exploding_head:


#1920

Pain au chocolate means chocolate in bread FYI.


#1921

Wait till he hears about pain au raisin
